Then on to Sainte - Mere - Eglise were we met up with Allan and swapped stories over a bite to eat. A nice village square with the life - size Americian Airborne soldier dummy hanging off the church spire to commerate the Americian Airborne landing on the village on the eve of D day

We then all visited the Americian Airborne Museum, my second time here, but still well worth the visit.

From here it was a leisurely ride along the coast back to Cherbourg.

A smooth crossing back to Ireland , and witnessed a pod of whales off the side of the ferry - a great end to another great trip.

Total milage about 3100.

A great time of the year to visit these areas as the traffic was very light - the heaviest traffic we encountered was riding round Dublin on our way home.

Until next time.

Great write up that Keith ! Thoroughly enjoyed following the report.
Good idea to spread it over a bit of time too, rather than trying to do it all in one sitting.
Nice job !

Cheers D & Vigor.

Vigor - Campsites are cheap, espicially the Municipal ones. Around €10 a night max
